Bright as the morning sunshine
Blissfully as can be
She was hopeful and determined
She was full of awe and curiosity
But the world was a dangerous, dangerous place
It was no land for this ignorantly happy girl !
They prowled and snared just for a chance .
The moment she’d look away
On her ,they’d let All hell unfurl !
Naive and still oblivious ,
The girl thought the world was hers to take ,
With all her might she set out on a journey ,
Not knowing what was at stake …
She skipped about gleefully,
She was optimistic and strong
She assumed she was almost there and that’s where things started to go wrong ….
And alas on that fateful day ,
As she was onward on her journey The world finally got hold of her
It all came thundering down ..before she could even understand the cacophony !
She was tortured and annihilated
Stripped of her spirit
She was denied that fundamental purpose
To stand up for herself ..
To travel and adventure ..to reach out and fulfil her destiny
Beyond any redemption now
She was Murdered in cold blood
She was punished for not having obeyed
She wouldn’t have suffered if she had just stayed
But since she decided to listen to herself
The girl called Dreams lied mutilated and slayed .
How many of us really follow our dreams ? How many of us really have the courage to do so ? It is a scary question , isn’t it ?
Most of us just give up under the pressure , try and follow norms set by the society .
And dreams ? Well , they are just smothered …and left for dead .
